Re : OB said "Only have one more baby"

<t>I'm one of those "don't have anymore babies" people. Ours weren't exactly planned though. After my 2nd, I was told not to have anymore. Our third was a birth control baby and the first Dr. I saw with her told me I should terminate. We sought out a good perinatologist who said he would take good c...

New Hospital tour

<t>I hope this is ok to post here. I'm not in anyway promoting, just thought it might be fun for some of us to see. The New hospital that they are building in Murray will be having an open house on Sept 28-29. They'll have valet parking and shuttles. The directions I have say it is accessible from I...

Re : How to discipline a 34 month old

<t>Reminds me of my kids but I have 5 runners.<br/> Time outs work but you have to be consistent. If you threaten to do something, you have to follow through or they'll learn they can manipulate you. 2 is not too early to start. It's easier at 2 to teach them than when they are 5 and they really kno...

Re : Growth Curve for IUGR Babies

<t>All but one of my kids is still below the 10%. I get asked all the time if they are in the right grade and if I feed them enough. None of them were IUGR but all were early and have just followed their own growth curve. I think in our case, a lot of it is genetics. I'm only 5'5 and DH is 5'9. My 7...

Re : Help! I can't get in w/o a referral! - I'm IN!

<t>As you can see, I have quite a history of pregnancy complications, despite that I too couldn't go see a peri without a referral. I went to a regular OB first just to get the referral. He told me that he could handle my pregnancy, that he'd treat it just like a normal pregnancy and treat things as...

Re : BP high & protein at 6 weeks

<t>I just wanted to say I can relate.<br/> I was spilling +2 protein at my 8 week appointment and BP's of 140/80. I was told I have chronic hypertension despite the fact my BP's are 110/70 when not pregnant. Trying to insist that it's PIH and not chronic hypertension is pointless. They see it all as...

Re : induction without pain meds?

<t>Thank you ladies so much. I guess I am just scared to death because of my last pregnancy. I had a very fast induction. I was determined not to have an epidural because of a spinal headache I got with my other baby and thought I was doing great until I asked them to check me and they said I was on...

induction without pain meds?

<t>I won't be able to have an epidural or spinal with this pregnancy and am very nervous about being induced. Has anyone here been induced but without pain meds? How did you do? I figure since some here have had HELLP that there may be some that were unable to have an epidural because of it. I've as...

Re : Difference between PIH and PE

<t>Medical definitions don't mean that Dr's use them that way. My Dr's called everything pregnancy induced hypertension. Even when I developed HELLP syndrome they were still referring to it as PIH. I only knew it was HELLP because I read my chart.<br/> <br/> In my case, I always spill protein so it'...
